Another Republican cave-in

At this point, can anyone even pretend to be surprised?
IMMIGRATION:
The bill only funds the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees most immigration policy, until February. But negotiators gave new money for immigration programs at other federal agencies. There's $948 million for the Department of Health and Human Service's unaccompanied children program -- an $80 million increase. The program provides health and education services to the young migrants. The department also gets $14 million to help school districts absorbing new immigrant students. And the State Department would get $260 million to assist Central American countries from where of the immigrant children are coming.

AFFORDABLE CARE ACT:
The law is still funded, but there's no new money for it. There's also no new ACA-related funding for the Internal Revenue Service and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, the two agencies most responsible for implementing the law. The bill also would cut the budget of the Independent Payment Advisory Board -- what Republicans have called "the death panel" -- by $10 million.

OVERSEAS MILITARY OPERATIONS:
There's $1.3 billion for a new Counterterrorism Partnership Fund; $5 billion for military operations to combat the Islamic State, including $1.6 billion to train Iraqi and Kurdish forces; $500 million for a Pentagon-led program to train and equip vetted Syrian opposition fighters; $810 million for ongoing military operations in Europe, including requirements that at least $175 million is spent in support of Ukraine and Baltic nation

SEXUAL ASSAULT IN THE MILITARY:
There's $257 million for the Pentagon's Sexual Assault Prevention and Response programs, including $25 million more to expand the Sexual Assault Victims’ Counsel program. But Democrats, led by Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-N.Y.), are expected to make a final push to expand the program this week.
As Drudge puts it: "REPUBLICAN BETRAYAL: OBAMACARE FULLY FUNDED AMNESTY TOO!"

But no doubt Republican lawmakers will hasten to point out that there is no ADDITIONAL money for Obamacare. By Washington standards, that counts as a severe budget cut.

At this point I don't think there is anything whites can do except try to take over the republican party. They have zero chance with the democrats, but they have a growing base in the GOP that is receptive to their issues. The problem is that our new republicans don't have seniority, and so when we voted them in, guys like McCain and Boehner get the keys to the kingdom rather than our guys.

I don't know much about the House rules, but I would hope there is a serious challenge to change the Speaker. But definitely removing the remaining traitorous elite from the GOP, though a difficult challenge, is much easier than trying to take over the democrat party or forming a new one.

I noticed too. Today I listened, or attempted to listen to Rush. As soon as I tuned in, he was ranting about the release of the CIA report and complaining that this would handcuff us. Mind you I only tuned in after I saw the big headline on Drudge about the GOP selling out over obamacare and amnesty. So I was tuning in to see hear Rush go off. I was disappointed he seemed more interested in the CIA story versus the twin killers of the government takeover of one-fifth of the economy and naked demographic change.

Of course, I turned off Rush immediately, so I don't know if he did cover the sellout during his 3-hour block. But I have noticed that the temperature among the GOP faithful doesn't seem to be that high given this massive sellout.

Congratulations to the GOP for using their newly acquired political capital to castrate themselves.

To believe that you'd have to believe they actually desired a different outcome. I don't think the interests of the party leadership vary that much from those of the Democrats. They simply told us what we wanted to hear so we would vote for them.

I agree with Ace. If the Republicans have, say, a five seat majority in the Senate we should target the worst four Republican Senators and actively campaign against them. It seems you can't get their attention without threatening the only thing they really care about, so let's make them uncomfortable.

Someone's comment blast from the past:

In fact, the Founding Fathers warned us about the threat from a two party system.

John Adams said:

There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our Constitution.

George Washington agreed, saying in his farewell presidential speech:

The alternate domination of one faction over another, sharpened by the spirit of revenge, natural to party dissension, which in different ages and countries has perpetrated the most horrid enormities, is itself a frightful despotism. But this leads at length to a more formal and permanent despotism. The disorders and miseries, which result, gradually incline the minds of men to seek security and repose in the absolute power of an individual; and sooner or later the chief of some prevailing faction, more able or more fortunate than his competitors, turns this disposition to the purposes of his own elevation, on the ruins of Public Liberty



Without looking forward to an extremity of this kind, (which nevertheless ought not to be entirely out of sight,) the common and continual mischiefs of the spirit of party are sufficient to make it the interest and duty of a wise people to discourage and restrain it.



It serves always to distract the Public Councils, and enfeeble the Public Administration. It agitates the Community with ill-founded jealousies and false alarms; kindles the animosity of one part against another, foments occasionally riot and insurrection. It opens the door to foreign influence and corruption, which find a facilitated access to the government itself through the channels of party passions. Thus the policy and the will of one country are subjected to the policy and will of another.



There is an opinion, that parties in free countries are useful checks upon the administration of the Government, and serve to keep alive the spirit of Liberty. This within certain limits is probably true; and in Governments of a Monarchical cast, Patriotism may look with indulgence, if not with favor, upon the spirit of party. But in those of the popular character, in Governments purely elective, it is a spirit not to be encouraged. From their natural tendency, it is certain there will always be enough of that spirit for every salutary purpose. And, there being constant danger of excess, the effort ought to be, by force of public opinion, to mitigate and assuage it. A fire not to be quenched, it demands a uniform vigilance to prevent its bursting into a flame, lest, instead of warming, it should consume.

John Adams said:

Nothing like that exists now.

There is a corrupt international over-class with an ethnically cohesive core that puts it beyond the reach of effective competition from individuals and individualists. (Collective strategies are highly dominant over individualist strategies in social competition. Also, an individual, however formidable, cannot act on the long time frames that a stable collective can, or with the same all-pervasive reach.)

This overclass influences or outright runs the entertainment media, the news media and academia. It asks questions that politicians have to answer on its terms. It says what's an issue and what's passed over in silence. It defines the environment in which parties and politicians operate.

It also controls political funding. In both "alternative" parties, people like Haim Saban, Sheldon Adelson and Mark Zuckerberg say who will be a lavishly funded "mainstream" candidate, and who will be an underfunded "whack job" with a lavishly funded opponent.

It maintains a monopoly on political mobilization by incentivizing a long war on a certain "evil" race, by demonizing and putting out of work anyone who tries to mobilize that race for its collective defense, and by w-word g-word thing-that-shall-not-be-mentioned, which is a demographic strategy and the endgame.

It is an endgame that implies a world without people like John Adams and George Washington, and so one without their sentiments, values, political principles and entire culture. No genotype: no phenotype. The end.

What George Washington described as a sort of political hell would be a paradise compared to what's coming at us.

To all this, the phony "conservative" parties, including the Republican Party, consent. Often they aggressively support that agenda. It was the Conservatives that locked out Enoch Powell. George W. Bush was all for mass immigration and a political enemy of those who "don't want to do what's right for America". The Republican Party is going out of its way to support mass non-white immigration by Democratic executive fiat now.

American gun owners still have their guns in part because they entrust the defense of their constitutional right to organizations such as the NRA. They don't trust this to "respectable conservatives" such as Republicans. And they shouldn't. If it was up to the Republican Party to defend the Second Amendment, America would be completely disarmed. If it was up to the Republican Party to defend capitalism, America would be Maoist.

There is no principle that you can entrust to Republican leaders that they will not abandon in order to have a chance of coming ahead of the others in "the Sheldon Adelson primary".

That is what "two great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other" looks like in the 21st Century.

OpenID simplytimothy December 11, 2014 8:21 AM  

I doubt we will win this without civil war, but here is the lay of the land as I see it.

The battle Angelo Codevilla describes in his seminal essay America’s Ruling Class — And the Perils of Revolution is out in the open now. The Republican party's disdain for their Reaganite base and coalition is now expressed openly--Jeb Bush, Karl Rove, McConnell, Rubin, WSJ--increasingly there is no pretext of unity.

The barriers to entry for a third party are (from what I have heard) very high. I would very much like to see one. (Can we kick-starter one? open-source the process?)

The barriers to entry to take over the Republican party are easier, but I think we are out of time. Barry O is in full Marxist Revolution mode now. He will go massive on importing his illegals.The Republicans are money bag men. They have no souls , no character , no purpose beyond money, prestige and power. My hunch is they will align with BarryO .

We wasted a years of time trusting the Republican machine to do the right thing--6 years by my count. This last primary season killed that trust as the Republican machine had to bare their corrupt, petty, evil souls to hold power against the teaparty insurgents. I don't think we will make the mistake of playing by the rules going forward.

The Article V Convention of the states is gaining momentum. Its a long-shot, but I hope it works at it completely bypasses the Federal Government and flexes long-dormant muscles.

In that mix is the Financial bubble popping, the plans for war with Russia (per David Stockman) and God knows what else these bastards have up their sleeve. They will raid pensions, 401K's and private accounts. They will continue to privativize profits and socialise losses. They will give themselves a raise during this process.


There is also our side and how they will react.

Change happens at the margins--Bundy Ranch being an example; I will not be surprised to see some politicians assasinated as the choices grow starker.

I also know that I am not the only man thinking dark thoughts and praying dark prayers. If I--a peaceful, non-violent man--am thinking and praying such things, I know that men who know violence and war--and how to do such things--are thinking and praying them too.

I was originally bothered by the video until I found a translation. The group pretends online to be a 14yo boy willing to sell himself for a price in rubles less than the USD value of a carton of cigarettes in NYC. What had me want to translate it was that it seemed the guys where enjoying what was being done to them, they certainly didn't seem forced, apparently they do their pranks on the cheap pedos but don't turn them into the cops. The Russian law doesn't affect consenting gay adults that avoid public sex, so its more along the lines of Don't Ask Don't Tell. An extra penalty for having sex in graveyards and by the railroad tracks might keep guys from cheating on their boyfriends.
